Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Decorating Your Master Bedroom

Posted on: May 24, 2007


Your master bedroom should be a sanctuary for rest and relaxation. For many of us, however, it is the most overlooked room in the house. It becomes a last priority in the busyness of life. Whether time or money is the reason for your master bedroom’s neglect, these tips should help you quickly transform a drab bedroom to a mater suite at a price anyone can afford.

First, evaluate the layout of the room. Is there a design that would better suit your purposes? Is there a way of arranging the furniture that would offer a more appealing look? Remember, furniture does not have to be flat against the wall. A bed straddling two corners offers a nice look.

Next, check out the colors of the room. What is the predominant color or colors? Do you like them? If not, make a change. Painting the walls of a bedroom can add color in an instant. This is the cheapest way to make a dramatic difference. Don’t fall victim to white walls. Find a pastel that fits your color theme. Or, if you are feeling daring, pick a darker color and paint one wall with it.

Fabric is another way to add a spice to dull bedroom. While picking window treatments is important, the influence of fabric does not need to end there. Find a fabric that adds color and texture to your room and hang it as a wall decoration. Window dowel rods are not reserved for the windows alone. Hang them anywhere you want to add some fabric. The accent draperies add to a room, even on a mock window, can make a big difference in the appearance of a room.

When picking fabric for the walls and windows, keep the color and pattern of your bedding in mind. Getting a completely new comforter or duvet can be expensive. There are other options, however. Add a blanket with a complimentary color or pattern to the foot of the bed to add a new look. Or, fold the cover down halfway to expose a flattering blanket. If you choose to replace your comforter or duvet cover, go for a neutral color that will easily blend with your other colors. You can also use it again during your next bedroom makeover.

A headboard for your bed does not need to be expensive. In fact, with a little creativity, you can have a one of kind headboard with very little cost. A carved wood screen can be found at discount stores or resale shops. Remove the hinges and mount the screens above the bed with picture frame wire. Or, purchase six to nine picture frames with matting. Instead of using pictures, use your favorite wallpaper or wrapping paper to add an accent to the room.

Making your own canopy is another romantic-looking option. Install a curtain rod above the head of the bed. Add a lightweight fabric, such as tulle, in a soft color. For an even more sophisticated look, hang the rods above each end and sides of the bed for a canopy that completely surrounds your bed.

As a finishing touch in your bedroom, you can add a few accents. Lamps add a nice touch and do not need to pricey. Check out garage sales, flea markets, or thrift stores for unique lamps. Groups of candles and accent pillows offer a nice complimentary look, as well.

Making over your bedroom does not have to be expensive. You can quickly transform your slumber haven by making a few simple changes with color and texture that will make a big difference.

wow! it’s amazing..!
i love this decoration. it is sophisticated and sexy at the same time.

I really liked your idea of adding a coordinating blanket at the end of the bed. It is simple to do yet adds tremendous impact and additional color to a bed! And if your duvet or bedspread is a neutral color, the blanket can easily (and inexpensively0 be changed out for a different color whenever you want a change.
